GFA to decide on Interior, Red Scorpions case
Tuesday, April 03, 2012
The vice chairman of the Normalisation Committee of The Gambia Football Association who also doubles as the spokesperson for the Committee, Alhaji Omar Sey says his Association is hoping to make a decision on the fallout from last year’s women first division league.
It is now six months since the last competitive game in the women first division league. A dispute between Red Scorpions and Interior football clubs is yet to be settled, which has led to a delay in the start of the new season.
Red Scorpions have filed an appeal to the Organising Committee of the Gambia Football Association Women Football Committee headed by Des-Samba Mbenga protesting Interior’s usage of a particular player called Isatou Basse, which the former argued wasn’t eligible to represent the latter.
hails from Basse was said to be part of another regional team from the Upper
River Region and doesn’t have the licence to represent Interior.
said: “That (the appeal launched by Red Scorpions against the Interior player)
is on the agenda and we will certainly sit over it like many other issues that
we have found. When we came, we found a lot of pending issues and this one is
just one of them.
The security is another one and these are all pending issues and we will address them. “We will have a committee that will be tasked to look at them and design the way forward.”
